Targeted molecular imaging in oncology improved imaging techniques and the radiolabelling of tracers and drugs are making non invasive imaging of molecular targets possible thereby facilitating the translation of these scientific breakthroughs into clinical practice. Molecular targets for oncological research in 1 cell apoptosis 2 gene and nucleic acid based approach 3 angiogenesis 4 tumor hypoxia and 5 metabolic imaging are discussed numerous imaging ligands in these categories have been developed and evaluated in animals and humans. Although of increasing sophistication the anatomic imaging methods currently used will soon give way to sensitive molecular imaging techniques for providing the utmost in specific and in many cases targeted radiation therapy. Focus in targeted molecular imaging molecular imaging provides angiogenesis cellular translational and transcriptional information the impor tant applications in molecular imaging in oncology are differentiation ie inflammation vs recurrence sensitive targeted molecular imaging in oncology
